A young female school teacher in Western Australia has been charged with 23 offences relating to accusations of molesting a teenage girl.
According to a police statement released on Tuesday the Child Abuse Squad detectives arrested the 26-year-old woman on Saturday, a day after the offences were reported.
The girl, who police confirm was a pupil of the teacher, alleges that the abuse began in July 2015, when she was just 15, and it continued on until May of this year.
The woman has been charged with multiple offences including sexual penetration of a child and persistent sexual conduct with a child under 16 years of age.
The woman is due to face court on June 14.
